Best mineral makeup for oily skin?

Recommended Posts

I read somewhere online that Bare Essentials was good for oily skin (maybe the Bismuth)? but wondered from people that have already tried it.

 

I tend to get shiny too of course with the oily skin so wondered a) which help with the shine... B) doesn't make my skin MORE oily and c) which won't make me break up from clogged pores and more oily being generated?

 

THANKS!

Hi,

 

 

I don't have oily skin, but when I use Bare Escentuals, if someone takes my picture, tiny flecks show up in the pictures from the powder.

 

I haven't had that happen with other mineral makeup.

I never used BE, but I used Isadora which is very similar to BE and after that I promised myself to never use anything that has bismuth in it.

 

Now I use oil control powder and Meow foundation. I also like Lumiere in cashmere. However from my observation when you have oily skin you will have to use few foundations and change them from time to time. The skin is getting used to some of the ingrdients and while at the begining it works, it stop working over time.

 

I usually blot my face one or twice a day and that's enough to keep my makeup in place for a whole day and I do not retouch during the day. Besides it's difficult to find something perfect for the skin, while in winter I use different foundation and application method than in summer. I also use more foundation in winter and tend to find something whith heavier coverage.

 

Oily skin is always a problem and you never know what you are sensitive to.

Try Monave. I have combination skin, and I find that I am less shiny at the end of the day when I use Monave (instead of BE or Ocean Mist). Also, mineral veil helps combat the oilies. smile.gif

I too have oily skin. I tried BE and hated it. It made me look very shiny and for someone who already has oily skin to begin with......not a good combination. But maybe it might work for you?

I have used Bare Minerals and I have oily skin. I love it, but you really do need to use the mineral veil with it - and - use the original or tinted mineral veil, not the feather light one because it has too much sparkle and can make you look shiny all over again.

I have oily skin and ive tried tons of MMU and the one that stays the day with no touch ups is Lily Lolo. I love , love, love it. I apply it wet and it stays all day.

Look for something with clay in it - kaolin I think is good; I know bentonite clay is known for it's oil absorbtion properties. Purelycosmetics carries a product called Oil Absorb that is bentonite clay. I've seen quite a few other companies with kaolin clay; just can't find them off the top of my head.

I have oily skin too and I've been using Lumiere, but I am definitely interested in trying some of these other brands!

You can try Aubrey Nicole. They are having free shipping now until 11th Feb. Their full coverage foundation contains kaolin, it should work for oily skin. If you find foundations with kaolin too drying, try Lumiere's Cashmere with silk powder. It's good for combination skin.

Me too! EM's Matte is my favorite, and it controls oil but doesn't look heavy and mask like (as some of the other brands do IMO.) It has a nice translucency that I think is very flattering, and seems to minimize my flaws instead of exaggerating them. Plus, it's super cheap when purchased in a kit. What's not to love?

There are so many options (at least online) out there, you don't need BE (and it's not that good anyway, way overrated). To help with oily skin, pick something with kaolin. I use finishing powder (or veil, whatever they call it) before and after foundation, that helps to control the oil.

The one that i find good for oil control is Meow Primer. However, i am using their sample so going to finish soon, wanting to order the full size shipping is expensive to me so i am looking for an alternative oil control. I had placed order with Aubrey Nicole for their oil control powder and Rice finishing silk powder so wondering if anyone try them before?

wow I am not alone suffering from oily skin. This pushes me to make my own mineral makeup. I used to wear proactive foundation and powder but its draining my pocket. I am happy with my Ultimate Matte Loose Mineral Foundation. My skin dont shine for 4 hours and I am so happy about it.

    • HAHA:) It is quite funny and even true sometimes;)))
    • I went to a function in August and I was used mascara. Since then the eyelashes of my eyes have become very thin. I did not benefit from the remedies. Right now my eyes look so bad because of eyelashes. Please suggest me a remedy for growing eyelashes.
    • I started using e.l.f. eyelid primer lock and didn't have any problems.  Just recently when I reordered the product, the container was a different color though the product color is the same.  I read the information from each one and one is made in China (new one) and my old one is made in USA.   I started using the China made one and my eyes are starting to become irritated. I'm not sure if it's the eye lock primer or a new body lotion I just started using (Nivea). I'm eliminating the Nivea to see if perhaps it's the China made eye lock e.l.f product.   Has anyone else had any similar issues with China vs USA made?
    • Yes, poker is quite interesting for me. But I don't play for money..
    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now.
